First Day In Cameron Highland

When my son knew that we were going to Cameron on Thursday 26th, he informed me that there will be thunderstorm and to be careful. It was so hot in the lowland but I took heed of what he told me. Thank God, even though the sky was overcast throughout the drive up to the highland and for the whole day in Cameron, it didn't rain until the evening.

After we have checked into the same apartment that we stayed on our earlier trip, we rested for awhile until everyone is ready for lunch. We went back to Tringkap Restaurant, No. 14, Taman Puncak for our lunch. The following were the dishes we had for lunch for 6 people. It was about 1 pm and no lunch crowd, so we didn't have to wait long to be served.
Pig Trotter in sweet, sour black vinegar. This is good, very appetizing.
Green, fat, juicy and tender beans stir fried with dried shrimps.
Their signature dish - deep fried crispy Talapia fish.
This time the fish slices were very crispy, not like the previous time.
Tofu with assorted vegetables in clay pot.
Lunch including rice & drink for 6 people cost MYR 95.

We passed by this school just before Taman Puncak.
Saw a new apartment project, drove round it to check it out. It was raining, so look from inside the car. No sign of occupancy.
Timed a quick snapshot after the screen wiper cleared away the raindrops.
Back to the main road. Went back to The Square near our apartment where there is covered parking.
Went up to the top floor (entertainment). Very quiet, we were the only visitors. Great for taking photos of posters on the wall.
Kids would love this place.

The rained stopped. Our next stop is a Mushroom farm, located at the S-Corner.
My first visit to this place selling organic mushroom.
This is how mushroom is cultivated.
The Lingzhi mushrooms used for its medicinal benefits.
Harvested mushrooms for sale.
Mushroom farm
Information and mushroom products for sale.
Before we left, our friend bought 2 packets of Passion fruits.
Next is coffee time!
Afternoon coffee (4.25 pm) at Starbucks, Tanah Rata town.
We-fies for sweet memories.
Nice cool weather to enjoy coffee while watching the passing traffic.

Taken from the balcony of the apartment.
Resting, fellowship, "whatsapping" and waiting for dinner time!

Linking to Good Fences.

He isn't really being slow about his promised return,
even though it sometimes seems that way,
But he is waiting, for the good reason that
he is not willing that any should perish,
and he is giving more time for sinners to repent.
(2 Peter 3:9, The Living Bible-TLB)

    Eh why are the pictures inverted starting just before the "Starbucks" one.
